Known issues with v1.2.0

The MSI has been signed with a self-signed certificate. This may result in Windows Defender generating an alert on first install of a new release. Select "More Info" to install the MSI. This will be addressed in a subsequent release.

  • Removed all /v1/close traffic from the SDK

    and Branch::getVersionW(), were also introduced.
